The $1,400 Maison Margiela Future Destroyed Sneakers are here to make a Bold Statement!
A Paris-based company is selling $1,400 Maison Margiela Future destroyed sneakers, because why not?
Maison Margiela has taken over the internet with its unique form of “Future Destroyed” sneakers.
We are unsure what happened to the old good fashion and what is today’s fashion about. We do know, however, that Neiman Marcus’ sneakers are here to make a bold statement.
Their extreme form of torn sneakers has exposed padding, stapled leather and frayed material. The striking design of the luxury brand’s new addition is clearly unique. Not everyone would wear the pair of destroyed sneakers.
The retail price for a pair is approximately $1,425 on neimanmarcus.com. But the question we are all asking is who would buy this crazy pair of shoes?
“Enigmatic Belgian designer Maison Margiela is a pioneer of avant-garde fashion, working with other deconstructionist designers during the 1980s to redefine luxury under radical new terms.
In conjunction with the influential Antwerp Six and pioneers like Comme des Garcon’s Rei Kawakubo, Margiela challenged the boundaries of convention, turning out extreme proportions, deconstructed designs, and conceptual pieces made from found objects like trash bags and seat belts.
Though the famously reclusive Margiela is no longer with the label he sold in 2002, his distinctive vision is as relevant as ever, influencing a new generation of mainstream and directional designers alike.” according to the listing.
The fashion today is nothing like the old, and we see it every day how it changes. Sometimes in a good way and sometimes, like this time, in a bad way.
The destroyed sneakers are a rather unique form of the brand’s popular “Future” high-tops. Kanye West, who has a net worth of $145 million, wore a pair during his Yeezus tour.
How much is a “normal pair”?
What is crazier is that the all-black original sneakers sell for $945, while the destroyed pair has a price tag of almost double.
The “unique” shoes feature a leather and textile upper, lace-up front with side lace guards and a logo patch at the tongue.
The Destroyed Sneakers are now on sale at Neiman Marcus. Would you buy them?
